    Never found any improved drivers for an iKey keyboard. I looked a lot.

    GPS on wwan is not a dedicated GPS module. The bios enables a dedicated GPS if installed.

    That's right. But how come it wont recognise in gps viewer app?
    Because if gps is in the bios, then theres a gps installed right?

    Get into BIOS. F2 at boot. NOT PC Info.
    Go to the page with the ports listed. Advanced tab
    Click on the serial ports sub page. Serial ports line
    It should list serial port and GPS.
    If GPS is not listed there then you do NOT have a GPS module.

    Some photos are of CF31-G1 is similar

    win10 needs a couple extra settings for a gps module.
    Cant recall 100% all of them.
    Jeff is correct about enabling location sensor.
    If you see gps auto in bios then you do have a gps module.
    Might not work on auto setting for the port.

    I have CF-19 MK 6 and MK7 and they all have GPS module auto in Bios running latest windows 10 pro. They all work out of the installation no extra settings to be enabled. Its just weird the FZ-G1 doesn't work. Though the EM7305 has a gps sensor and I can navigate maps driving in micorosoft maps.


    Thanks for this.

    I will try because I don't have skylight sierra installed in FZ-G1 but I just had a look of my Motion R12 which has the same sierra module installed and the motion R12 has a NMEA sierra in device manager with skylight installed?

    Where can I get the software for FZ-G1 or can I just use the one for my motion R12 rugged tablet software?

    Pick one gps system to work with please.
    Bouncing between wwan and dedicated gps is like mixing eggs and watermelon.

    wwan /sierra gps is different than a dedicated gps module ( serial port in bios)
    Each requires different software and different settings.
    Sierra skylight has nothing to do with dedicated gps, however it may work with wwan based gps.
